New Things

Not many actual posts here recently, but I have been adding links so maybe now is a good time to point you at some cool and groovy things I’ve found.

Melanie’s Bean Sprouts blog is the latest addition to my blogroll since it’s more or less what my own blog would be like if it were better. Stephen Fry has also started a blog, with very long essays that I find a bit hard to read on a computer screen but which are so far typically chatty and intelligent.

I haven’t done many posts about my penchant for sick/weird stuff here, but at the risk of freaking some people out a bit I really like the Deviant’s Dictionary for its frank and informative explanations of unusual sexual practices. If that doesn’t give you any new ideas then try How Can I Recycle This? For some further interesting alternative uses for household objects…

A new addition to my “Fun and Pointless” links is Clones and Posessed Children, a sick and weird online cartoon book by an artist I wish I could find more from. If you like children more philosophical and with less blood then Calvin and Hobbes is subversive and cute at the same time, and I totally identify with the way Calvin’s imagined and real worlds overlap so seamlessly. Talking tigers rather than talking rabbits, but much the same “only child” thing going on there I think.

Feel free to suggest more, there’s plenty of room in the side bar yet and I’ll add any I particularly like to help you all kick your terrible Facebook addictions.

Kirsty is “looking forward to going out tomorrow night!” apparently.

Oh no! The worst thing about Deviants' Dictionary is that it's sponsored by a leather company! There used to be a vegan porn site, but it disappeared a few years ago. Ho hum. It was, anyway, mostly concerned with vegetarian condoms and whether vegans should swallow. Ho hum. Deviants' Dictionary also doesn't have an entry for people with a penchant for stripes. Perhaps it doesn't count as deviant, which is boring, because just the word "deviation" sends a shiver down one's spine! However we do have an active website specialising in our enthusiasm...

Why shouldn't vegans swallow? Apart from the reasons that apply to everyone else too - non-vegan things usually taste BETTER than the vegan alternative...

Stripophilia???

Actually it has been shown by exhaustive testing that vegans taste better - it must be true because you can get a t-shirt (in a range of lipsmacking colours) to proclaim it to the world!!

Ok, NOW you're lowering the tone!
